Rickeem Jackson allowed to run
Friday, 29 August 2014 19:37

A state district court judge on Friday knocked down a residency challenge to Rickeem Jackson’s bid for the District 2 seat on the Jefferson Parish School Board, allowing the son of Saints Hall of Famer Rickey Jackson to run in the Nov. 4 election.

Another challenge, by School Board Member Etta Licciardi against Phillip Huskey in the race for the District 3 seat, was successful.

The plaintiffs in the suit against Jackson said the 25-year-old should not be able to run for the newly created District 2 seat against Ricky Johnson and April Williams because he had not been living in Louisiana for the required two-year period prior to signing up for the race.

It would be easy to dismiss Saints rookie safety Pierre Warren’s interception in his team’s 22-13 defeat against Baltimore at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Thursday night as cherry-picking a woefully overthrown ball by a backup quarterback.

But that would be unjust to the way Warren tracked the ball the Ravens’ Tyrod Taylor launched from his 35 to New Orleans’ end zone in an attempt to connect with receiver Kamar Aiken. It would be unfair to the manner in which Warren leapt for the ball and snatched it out of the air for a first-quarter Saints touchback.

City Hall to end year with surplus
Friday, 29 August 2014 19:37

The good news is this: City Hall in New Orleans is on track to end the year with a nearly $20 million surplus.

After years of chopping away at expenses, Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s administration has managed to accumulate some black ink on the city’s balance sheet, with an assist from rising tax revenues.

But he has accomplished this in part by putting off a collection of bills that soon may be coming due.

In fact, the $19.5 million surplus the city expects this year came to light Friday as part of a lawsuit brought by the city’s firefighters, who have been arguing for back pay from the city since Mayor Dutch Morial’s administration.

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A porn industry trade group has placed a moratorium on U.S. productions of adult sex films after one performer received a preliminary positive test for infection by the virus that causes AIDS.

The suspension, which began on Thursday, marks at least the third consecutive summer that porn productions have been shut down because of performers who tested positive for a sexually transmitted disease.

The online notice posted by the Los Angeles-based Free Speech Coalition did not identify the latest performer in question and said results from a confirmatory HIV test had yet to be completed.
